Dwayne Johnson has shared images of himself and Marvel star Chris Evans having fun filming ‘Red One’.

Following quickly on from the recent images from set, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has now shared some first-look images of himself and Marvel actor Chris Evans from the upcoming festive action flick, Red One.

Taking to social media, the images show Johnson and Evans in costume as their respective characters, characters whose backgrounds remain a secret at present, with the pair of A-listers clearly having a great time working together. You can check out these latest images from Red One below.

“It’s beginning to look a lot like CHRISTMAAAS,” Johnson says in a caption alongside the images, which show himself and his Red One co-star Chris Evans having fun posing and filming “Officially kicking off production for our CHRISTMAS franchise film titled, “RED ONE” with my guy @chrisevans.” Johnson then reveals that “Chris and I have been waiting to make a Christmas movie our entire careers and now finally, the trouble begins…”

The action superstar then heaps praise on Red One director Jake Kasdan while teasing the unique approach to the Christmas movie.

“Our director, Jake Kasdan has been in inspired form to deliver a very special, one of a kind CHRISTMAS franchise for you and your families around the world to enjoy,” he continues. “* Jake directed both JUMANJI: WELCOME TO THE JUNGLE & JUMANJI:: THE NEXT LEVEL. More to come. Lets get to work. Merry Christmas.”

Not much has been revealed about the plot of Red One, but the project has been described as “a globe-trotting, four-quadrant action-adventure comedy imagining a whole new universe to explore within the holiday genre.” Based on these latest images, it looks like Evans will be playing an everyman-type who is no doubt dragged on an adventure by Johnson’s character. A character who, based on the red-and-black suit, candy-cane-looking lasso, and big, black boots, is looking more and more likely to be a burly, action-oriented Santa Claus.

Directed by Jake Kasdan and from a script written by Chris Morgan that is based on an original story by producer Hiram Garcia, Red One stars Kiernan Shipka, Lucy Liu, Mary Elizabeth Ellis, J. K. Simmons, Nick Kroll, Kristofer Hivju, and Wesley Kimmel alongside Johnson and Evans.

Former wrestler Dwayne Johnson is now considered to be one of the biggest box office draws of modern movies, as well as one of the few actors who can still sell a project based on his name alone.

His recent foray into comic book movies, Black Adam, has seen massive financial success since its release last month, grossing $319.7 million worldwide.

The action star has his sights set on continuing the franchise, with Johnson fighting hard to bring back Henry Cavill as Superman and set up a big screen battle between the DC superheroes.

No doubt, a Christmas outing led by Johnson and co-starring Captain America himself, Chris Evans, is destined to become a holiday favorite.

Red One is scheduled to be released exclusively through streaming via Amazon Prime Video, and is expected to debut during the holiday season of 2023.
